Online indicator

Posted by ~Shockwave~ on Nov 22 2012 - 07:22 PM

is there any way we could get these back. I kind of miss them.
and it may be just because I like the shape, but he, who didn't?

Currently, if you mouseover a member's name, you'll see a bunch of info including their last active date and whether they're online or offline. I'm guessing that's not enough? Where would you like to see the indicator?

I'd like to see the old UDD symbol next to names

Not that It isn't enough. It fulfills the purpose, I just think it would be nice if it was on the post again.

If it was re-implemented, I'd like to see the current "online/offline" symbols. I think they flow better than the UDD symbol.

You mean the red/grey box with the text that says 'online' or 'offline'?

UPDATE - I was able to add the current indicators in. If we want the old UDD symbols though it's going to take a little more work.

Is it? I can't image it being that hard. Furthermore, once it's done I figure there should be fewer lines of code than before.

Maybe you could post the snippet of code for the online indicator in posts here?

Personally, I think the UDD symbol would look better, this one takes up too much space. If we keep this one, though, I'd prefer it after the username and not before.

I personally think the gold UDD symbol would clash horribly with the rest of the boards. The current indicator is simple enough for new members to understand, and flows seamlessly with the aesthetics (although I agree that it would be better AFTER the username).

Personally, I'd like to see it above the profile picture rather than beside the name. When it's by the username, it seems to be too cluttered, but I think that when it's above the profile picture, it appears more synchronized. Just my two cents on it, though. Also, I think that while the UDD symbol would not fit the updated forums, a different image would be better. The default IP.B "Online" Image looks too formal for BZP. Honestly, none of the IP.B buttons really fit BZP's style, at least the old forum's style.

Might it be possible to reinstate the old UDD images? I agree with -Reznas- here - it seems pretty cluttered.

Like I said, not easily. The code to specify the position does not actually specify the image, so I have to figure out where that is (probably somewhere in the CSS).

Figured it out! Last thing - do we want to replace it in the hover-card and profiles as well?

I'm not sure - for new members, or people unfamiliar with the UDD thing, it might be nice to make the correlation that yellow = online, etc. But at the same time, the symbol is much classier than the red/grey box. :P

I'd say no. For new members, the UDD might be confusing, but then again, so could two different indicators.

I suggest you impliment that, yes. I also think it would be helpful if when you mouse over the UDD Symbol it says "Online" or "Offline". Although this would require extra coding.

This looks much better now. :)

I wouldn't change it in the hover-card, though, as I fear it could mess up the layout, though I'd be fine with either way. Same for the profiles.

To avoid confusion, maybe let the image say "online" or "offline" when hovering it? Also, the UDD symbol doesn't appear in PMs.

I've replaced the image in posts, profiles, and the hovercard. When you mouseover it says 'Online,' or 'Offline.' I'm considering this resolved.
